Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick warned residents that Tropical Storm Beryl — expected to make landfall on the state’s southeast coast Monday morning as a Category 1 hurricane — could be a “deadly storm” for those in its path.

The National Hurricane Center Before making landfall on Sunday, the storm strengthened on its path toward Texas, warning that it would become a Category 2 hurricane.

The storm is forecast to strengthen again as a hurricane as it moves toward the Gulf of Mexico, and by the time it makes landfall in the United States, it will become a Category 1 hurricane.

Governor Greg Abbott warned Texans to prepare for the impact: “As Texans and visitors to the South Coast celebrate Independence Day, I urge them to make emergency plans to stay safe.”

Beryl has so far killed at least eleven people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Jamaica and Venezuela after charting a deadly path through the Caribbean as a category five hurricane earlier in the week.

On Wednesday, the storm knocked out power to 400,000 homes and destroyed buildings in Jamaica.

Texas emergency officials to residents: Driving in flood water can be dangerous

The Texas Division of Emergency Management warned residents in areas vulnerable to Tropical Storm Beryl, which is expected to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on Monday, not to drive through floodwaters during the storm as doing so could be dangerous.
